Sit-to-stand Trainer in Patients After Lower Limb Amputation

2019-09-17 02:47:40 | BioPortfolio


The study will include rehabilitation inpatients after unilateral lower limb amputation who are candidates for walking with a prosthesis. Those in the experimental group will receive training using a sit-to-stand trainer device in addition to standard training of standing-up with the help of a physiotherapist. Those in the control group will only receive the standard training. The effects of the rehabilitation programme will be assessed using the 30-Second Chair Stand Test before the start of the training and after 10 days of training. For the first five patients from each group who will be able to stand up with the use of hands, detailed kinesiological analysis of standing-up pattern will be performed.
